Unsecured Personal Loans - for Tenants as Well as Homeowners

By: Bernard Ethen

Unsecured personal loans have tremendous popularity in the market these days. Unsecured personal loans can be availed without the need for the borrower to put up any collateral as security. These loans can be availed by the tenant as well as the homeowner. Tenants avail these loans as they have no other viable option. Homeowners take this loan when they feel putting an asset as collateral is too big a risk.

With an unsecured personal loan, one can borrow up to â‚?25000 with the range starting from â‚?500. The biggest benefit with an unsecured loan is that the person availing the loan is at minimal risk in case of an inadvertent default. There is no threat of collateral repossession here. However, the lack of collateral can lead to raised interest rates, as the lender has no real way of recovering money in case of default. The repayment amount can vary between one to ten years.

Unsecured loans can be acquired from myriad sources, of which the Internet is the best, in terms of choice and expediency. There are other sources too, like private lenders who offer feasible customer-oriented loans. Other sources include building institutions and traditional banks, two of the most established loan taking avenues.

People availing unsecured personal loans should do so with a bit of discretion. One should particularly stay away from loan sharks - or unlicensed lenders - of which there are a lot in the financial market. Proper comparison analysis is necessary in order to avail loans with feasible loan terms and conditions.

Apart from unsecured personal loans, there is another loan type in the market: secured personal loans. Secured loans are loan that are given against the presence of collateral, which, is most cases, is a home. The amount is determined by the equity present in the collateral.
